Got a clothespin? Turn it into a dragonfly. Got a walnut? Turn it into a sailboat. Kids will find these plus hundreds more easy crafts, including animals, nature crafts, games, gifts, toys and works of art in the revised, updated and redesigned New Jumbo Book of Easy Crafts. We've added 20 new crafts, including a wind sock to check the weather, a new costume for dress-up and a wagon train to store craft materials and toys.
We've also revitalized the cover and interior with fresh designs, while illustrator Caroline Price has added new illustrations, revisited her original art and colorized it. You'll also find an updated introduction and materials section.
The book divides crafts into four themed sections: Imagine and Create, Wear and Use, Make and Play and Decorate and Celebrate, making it easy for kids, parents and teachers to find the perfect craft for a special day, a special person or just for fun.
About the authors
D’aussi loin qu’elle se souvienne, JUDY ANN SADLER a toujours aimé lire, écrire et fabriquer des objets. Alors que ses enfants étaient encore tout petits, elle a décidé de combiner son amour des mots et sa passion du bricolage afin d’écrire des livres d’artisanat. Elle en a plus de 20 à son actif, en plus d’albums, de dizaines de chroniques d’artisanat et de nombreux articles de magazines. Judy Ann vit avec sa famille à London, en Ontario.
Ever since she could remember, JUDY ANN SADLER has loved to read, write, and make things. When her kids were little, she decided to combine her love of words and crafts by writing craft books.
